The task is about choosing the past perfect/present perfect/past simple. And I am asking about the part with ‘change’:
- Last week, I (run) __ into an ex-girlfriend of mine. We (see, not) __ each other in years, and both of us (change) __ a great deal. I (enjoy) __ talking to her so much that I (ask) __ her out on a date. We are getting together tonight for dinner.
Should I use ‘had changed’ or ‘have changed’? It is confusing me, because by the definition of past perfect - Action is finished, and it is followed in the story. But by the definition of present perfect - Action has finished in past and has an impact today (persons have changed) and it continues (ageing is not stoppable process). I would like more to hear, how to choose the correct tense in those complicated situations, rather than just - ‘Yea, that's the correct answer’. P.S. For other brackets I used - ‘run’, ‘didn't see’, ‘Question’, ‘had enjoyed’, and ‘asked’. I hope that I am not failing too hard :D Thanks ;)
